We think mom is really feeling guilty cuz she said, "Come on boys, let's go play in the backyard!" This was a huge relief to me, Murphy, cuz about 87 seconds had gone by without me fetching! I had to make sure my skills were really sharp for BAR! Luckily I was still running fast!
I still had my deep concentration and focus on the ball.
Stanley still daydreamed.
I still fetched.
Stanley still did his Neighborhood Watch (he is the captain).
I was still impatient for the next throw.
My ears still flipped even though they are shorter.
Stanley's back still itched.
Stanley still did his own thing while I ran all over the yard playing fetch.
Stanley still pawtected Dad from any fly balls.
Me and Stanley still ran together.
We still went in our own directions.
Wilson is still my BBF (best ball furever).
I still had laser lock vision on the ball.
I still liked to sniff the flowers (when Wilson is hiding there).
OK mom, all systems are go with me and Stanley!
